Definition:

JavaScript injection is a process that allows us to insert and use our own JavaScript code on a page by entering code in your address bar or finding the XSS vulnerability of a web site. Please note that changes are only visible and not permanent to you, as JavaScript is a “client- side" language.

Explained:

Javascript is one of the most popular technologies for web pages and web applications. It can be used to perform various website features. However, this technology can bring certain safety problems that the developer and tester should be aware of.

Javascript can also be used for some malicious attacks, not just for good purposes. One of these is Javascript Injection. The essence of JS Injection is to inject the customer-side Javascript code.

JS Injection gives a great number of opportunities for a malicious user to modify the design of the website, gain information from the website, change information on the displayed website and manipulate parameters such as cookies. This can cause serious website damage, leakage of information and even hacking.

Hope you got it!
